The above website provides accurate information on where to catch the peak 'koyo' (autumn colour) around Japan. You may want to get your Japanese speaking friend to help out.
Ryuzu Waterfall was peaked during the week of October 16 in 2013. It is about 1 hour 15 minutes from Nikko train station, 20 minutes from Chuzenji onsen station.
The bus stop is located at the final drop (also the most scenic part) of the fall, if time allows, you may want to walk upstream along the well paved walkway. It takes about 25 minutes to walk up to the top of the fall which hits the upper end of the bus route.
There is a small shop at the vista point for snack.
If you are taking the bus, be sure to time yourself for the next bus before walking around.
